Hi all,

the c- clips on my LLE's on the Toxic have slipped.

Just wondering if someone can tell me their exact location so that I can glue them in the correct place.

cheers

I'll send it over to you for a while once the initial"wow this new kite is great" factor wears off :-)

Tom,

I've had a bit of a journey with this kite, but now I have it setup correctly and have adjusted my flying style I love it and I have really keyed into it.
The first few flights I struggled with it. Eventually I found that that the bridle measurements were not even across the kite and the c clip positioning was not consistent either - once I fixed that the kite flew much better (not surprisingly!!). I also had to adjust my flying style from the big movements I have to use on my NSE set (my stock go to kites these days). The Toxic requires much smaller movements than the NSE, more like the  Talon,  say.
In fact the Toxic  is very different to the NSE (which is a predictable and very neutral kite with little ideosynchrasies).
The Toxic has very short standoffs (i.e: shallow sail) which changes its behaviour somewhat. I find it to be very easy to trick and put together combinations. All tricks are there very easily - it particularly excels at wrap type tricks (wraps with far more ease than the NSE). In particular Crazy Coptors, yo fades and mutli wrap tricks. It takes a little more careful touch  to half axel into a fade than an NSE (i.e: is a little less forgiving), but still does it easily. Comete's backspins, JL's etc easy. It's a little less neutral and predictable near the edge of the window (unlike the NSE which is well behaved right across the window) - the Toxic seems to like a full powered sail.
Wind range is excellent from quite low (say 3 mph ) to high (I've flown it to about 18mph) - but it is trickable in that range - unlike the NSE which is a struggle to trick for me above 12 mph - as I can't run fast enough to provide enough slack) - and I usually then go to the NSE HW.

All in all very impressive and fun - especially if you want something different in your bag. Not a kite that I would reccomend to someone without a good deal of flying experience though, due to it's slightly less forgiving nature and being not as neutral as say the NSE.

Thanks for the information! Very informative especially comparing it to one of their other kites.
